| 6 Comments

Gov. Schwarzenegger signed a law that will require the state to keep separate records and statistics for the San Fernando Valley — to consider the Valley as if it were a city distinct from Los Angeles. Voters may think they beat back secession, but leaders in the Valley got the bill through the Legislature so they can more easily see what the Valley gets for its tax dollars. "We need to figure out whether we're getting our fair share," assemblyman Lloyd Levine told the Daily News.
